. that is more than two years before the wright brothers took to the air at kitty hawk. joining us john brown, the aviation historian behind what could be a revision to history. so, john, i was amazed to read you've been working on this really only since last year. you were hired to do a documentary and found about something about this man, guys stuff whitehead? >> that's correct, jon. i was just as shocked as everybody else when i found it. jon: there is a lot of evidence out there. i mean his story was covered front page in newspapers around the country. more than 100 you learned. why have we not heard of him till now? >> i heard you before the commercial break asking the question, we were wrong about the wright brothers. well we weren't. one or two historians who said that, they were either wrong or just not looking hard enough. and that's what we historians do. we dig up facts and present them. jon: all right. so, what do you know about whitehead? he was a german immigrant. he knew a lot about engines and he was also fascinated with aircraft. the plane that he flew looks very much like a
goes on behind the scenes in meetings like this. ambassador john bolton is a former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. general jack keane is also with us, a four-star retired general and former chief of staff of the u.s. army and a fox news military analyst. aaron david miller is a former advisor to six secretaries of state. he is also the author of, the much too promised land. aaron, let's start with you. this meeting has been written about, much-discussed in the united states. why now? why now for president obama to visit israel? >> oh, i think it is the intersection frankly of politics and policy. obama helped create his own israel problem and not that the prime minister of israel didn't air ba his fair share of the responsibility but the fact these two, probably with the exception of david ben guron and dwight d. eisenhower had most dysfunctional relationship between any american president and israeli prime minister. the president made a political calculation and he was vulnerable and exposed on this he had to take care of old business. too many people thoug
. we'll keep you posted as we hear more about that. meantime secretary of state john kerry making a surprise visit to afghanistan in an effort, they say to repair fractured ties with that country. glad to have you with us on this monday. i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. secretary kerry finishing his middle east trip after a surprise trip to iraq of the he had a special sit-down with afghan president hamid karzai. it was his sixth time in afghanistan since president obama took office. his first as secretary of state. it comes at a krur time as the u.s. brings troops home turning more and more responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato
investigations, she's joined with john mccain and lindsay graham in raising serious questions about that on the national security front. and, actually, her presence there as a strong conservative voice on benghazi and other security issues has counterbalanced hillary clinton's very strong voice when she was secretary of state. so very interesting. uma: what do you think the men come away with from knowing that they are being watched very carefully by the women in this? it can no longer be simply an old boy network. >> yeah. i think the dynamic there has changed too where the men who have serve inside that body for a long time are now used to it. you know, they tell stories, women senators tell the stories when they fist have gotten there, you know, somebody on the senate floor will say, oh, no, this desk is for a senate. kelly ayotte tells the story she turns around, yes, i am a u.s. senator. [laughter] but the men are changing now, i think for the most part tend to look at their female colleagues as just colleagues in the senate. uma: and we're seeing more women in governorships, a
